Rosa is a 90-year-old Nonna who is looking to teach someone about her Italian recipes. She starts developing a loving bond with a robot named TOTO while teaching it how to make spaghetti. Unfortunately, things go wrong when Rosa’s granddaughter gives the robot a software update.

Rosa is the real-life Nonna of filmmaker Marco Baldonado and TOTO is an ode to her traditions. It is a sci-fi short about love, language family and technology that serves as a warning to people about losing special family traditions.
